Benthic foraminifera accumulation rate and benthic foraminiferal productivity proxies at ODP Site 165-999 in the Caribbean (Appendix A), supplement to: Jain, Sreepat; Collins, Laurel S (2007): Trends in Caribbean Paleoproductivity related to the Neogene closure of the Central American Seaway.

This study tests the hypothesis that the late Miocene to early Pliocene constriction and closure of the Central American Seaway (CAS), connecting the tropical Atlantic and East quatorial Pacific (EEP), caused a decrease in productivity in the Caribbean, due to decreased coastal upwelling and an end to the connection with high-productivity tropical Pacific waters. The present study compared paleoceanographic proxies for the interval between 8.3 and 2.5 Ma in 47 samples from south Caribbean ODP...
